Honda CBR500R Vamos custom at 2016 Bangkok Motor Show (LIVE)

 

The bike gets contrast colored bolts all over the chassis and engine.

The Honda CBR500R Vamos custom bike created by Evo Racing Project is being displayed at 2016 Bangkok Motor Show alongside the CBR500R custom bike by K-Speed. Like the K-Speed creation, the Vamos is a winner of the Motorbike Idea Challenge 2016 conducted by Honda’s Thai subsidiary.

The CBR500R Vamos is swathed in glossy black paint job with contrast golden accents at strategic locations. Starting with a bull decal on the front fender all the way to the golden chain sprocket at the rear, the custom track ready bike breathes aggression.

Noteworthy custom parts including carbon fibre accent below the visor, golden finished foot peg assemblies and alternator casing, custom seat cover, yellow monoshock, blue finished bolts on the engine and chassis, clip-on handlebar, Vamos race silencer, bespoke brake and clutch levers, rear view mirrors and special brake master cylinder.

Details of performance increase, if any, have not been disclosed. The CBR500R received a major facelift last year but the engine has been retained without any major changes. The 471 cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox to develop 47 PS.

The Honda CBR500R would be a ideal fit between the massive gap that exists between the CBR250R and CBR650F in the brand’s India portfolio. However, there has be no chatter relating to the mid-weight sportsbike’s local launch.
